G20 Global Leadership Program 2020 (Fully-funded)
Location: Seoul, Korea
Duration: March 17-27, 2020
Deadline: January 26, 2020
Details: The intensive two-week program will include an overview of Korea’s development experiences, development policy and G20 agenda issues such as quality infrastructure, climate change & green growth, sustainable development, international trade, aging population, 4th industrial revolution and strengthening of the financial system.
The G20 Global Leadership Program is co-hosted by the Ministry of Economy and Finance and Korea Development Institute (KDI) School of Public Policy and Management. As part of Korea’s commitment to the G20 Seoul Development Consensus for Shared Growth set forth at the Seoul Summit in 2010, which aimed “to add value to and complement existing development commitments,” this program aims to enhance the participants’ abilities to contribute to economic growth and reach global development goals in their respective countries and in the professional capacities they currently hold.
The program also incorporates a field study tour to other parts of the Korean peninsula. In order to witness firsthand Korea’s development experiences, participants will be given an opportunity to visit key industrial and cultural sites.
Each participant is required to participate in group activities and deliver presentations addressing a G20 agenda issue or a development challenge. The goal is to have each participant apply and incorporate the coursework and knowledge shared among peers in the program into his/her group presentations at the program’s end.
The program will be held in various locations in Korea – including KDI School of Public Policy and Management’s campus in Sejong City.
Each participant will be hosted by KDI School and the Korean government.
All program fees will be waived, and while attending the program each participant will be entitled to roundtrip airfare, accommodation, and a modest stipend.
